10. La Delice Pastry Shop

One of our readers introduced us to La Delice Pastry Shop, located at 372 Third Avenue at 27th Street. While the current owner, who took over La Delice in 1976, attended culinary school in Greece, you will find all manner of traditional biscotti, macaroons, cookies, pastries, danishes and muffins, in keeping with the original bakery that opened in 1935.
